How do I Properly Uninstall my Old Material Collections?

To fully uninstall an old Material Collection, do the following:

  1. Go to Edit>Preferences and in the Files>Paths section, remove the path to the textures that you previously added. If you’re using the Plus Library and want to continue using it, make sure not to remove the paths added referencing the Greyscalegorilla Asset Folder.
  2. Next, click the ‘Open Preferences Folder…’ button at the bottom of the preferences window and navigate to library/browser/ folder. Delete the lib4d files associated with the packs you are trying to uninstall.

Launching the HUB and Installing Your Plugins:

  1. Make sure you have properly installed the HUB. See the above instructions.
  2. In Cinema 4D, under the “Greyscalegorilla” menu, click on “Greyscalegorilla HUB”.
  3. Press the “Sign In” button on the top right.
  4. A dialog will appear where you can enter your email address and password that you used to sign in to www.greyscalegorilla.com.
  5. Once you are logged in, and if you are a Plus subscriber, then you will see a list of plugins appear in the Products section.
  6. Select individual plugins to install by checking their checkboxes, or you can press the “Select All” button to check all the plugins available.
  7. Press the “Install” button on the right-hand side to begin the installation.
  8. Please wait while all the plugins are downloaded and installed for you.
  9. Once they are installed, a dialog will appear telling you that the plugins were successfully installed and to restart Cinema 4D.
  10. Restart Cinema 4D.
  11. Your plugins are now available to use. You can find your plugins listed under the Greyscalegorilla menu as well as tags in the tags menu and scripts in the “Extensions→User Scripts” (or “Scripts→User Scripts” for R20).

Keeping Your Previous GorillaCam Presets

If you have exported out any User presets from GorillaCam then you will need to move these for the new plugins to find them.

  1. Startup Cinema 4D.
  2. Open the preferences dialog from Edit→Preferences.
  3. At the bottom left of the dialog press the “Open Preferences Folder” button. A window will open to the location of the C4D preferences folder, this is a folder that plugins are able to write to.
  4. Go into the “plugins” folder.
  5. Inside this folder will be a folder called “GorillaCam”. Check that it contains ‘Exports’ and ‘User’ folders. If it does, move on to the next step.
  6. Rename this folder from “GorillaCam” to “GorillaCam User”.
  7. Move this newly named “GorillaCam User” folder into the “Greyscalegorilla” folder.
  8. You did it! Now your previous GorillaCam presets can be used.
